i'm very proud of the poeple who made this site possible- it gives me pride and joy to know that we are making ourselves known.it is about time that people learn who we are and what we have overcome throughout history. i am proud to be native american, and may all who are also be proud of their roots. keep the fires of our backround burning in a world that tries to block it out. anakalia My name is Mike Flinn and I am researching my family history as it relates to the Powhatan People.So its good to see people of my race in the same state I live in, hopefully I will visit the museum soon.Its so funny when you speak a different language in this country, and white folks get mad " If you are living in America, speak the language" hilarious, since english wasnt the native language of america...
I have met so many new friends on the long 2 year journey of self discovery and I would like to give thanks to all that have assisted!!! betty I found out something very recently that I found to be appauling and, that was a group of people out of Madison, Wisconsin are putting on a 3 day excursion where they are charging people to learn about what they have termed as Shamanism; They will be putting on this workshop in Dodgeville Wiscosin at some retreat center Now if you thought that was bad it gets worse on this excursion they will be charging people for Sweats, Vision Questing and, a wide variety of other various medicine practices; In addition, the dollar amount that they are charging is outrageous it is 5 plus dollars; First of all The importance of Medicine Practices Native American or, Otherwise should not be taken lightly and, it should not be cheapend by a price tag, nor should it be sold ever for any reason; Secondly These practices are the birth-rites of the indiginous people of this and, other countries and, their cultural heritage should be treated with sacredness and, respect and, those who disrespect it by doing what these people are doing should have to pay some kind of pennance; Last but, not Least, these people have little to no real education on the subjects in which they are teaching on which makes them poor teachers and, frauds; If these people truly had wished to learn they should have obviously taken a very different approach with the understanding that, there is no guarntee that the indiginous people of anykind of Medicine Practices would teach them or, would not teach them anything at all I'm sure you can all understand now why i am angry!
remember that our heritage is sacred and unique- not that many people can honestly say that their veins carry our blood. I know very little at this point but would be very appreciative af any help that you can provide.
